Encore Photography’s principal photographer, Fred Molesworth, immortalizes transient moments shared between couples and families at a location of their choice anywhere within 25 miles of downtown Salem. All sessions begin with a planning consultation, when portraitists acquaint themselves with their subject’s personalities and passions to create a composition that best represents their individuality without resorting to drawn-in thought bubbles. The one-hour session is best for a nuclear family, affording time for group shots along with permutations such as parents together, children together, and children paired with their older time-traveling selves. Meanwhile, two hours is ample time for extended families, full experimentation with props, or the Mi Amore engagement package.
The Baby Steps series spans the first year of a new human’s life with sittings scheduled at birth, four months, eight months, and the first birthday. Mothers-to-be who schedule early enough may include a complimentary maternity session. Each infant sitting includes a 4”x5” print. Whichever package of snapshots is selected, Groupon-buyers enjoy a 20% discount on prints, with 8”x10” prints running $65 and a $179 starting price for wall-size shots, perfect for the old lagging dial-up mirror prank.

About Encore! Portrait Design
The photographer behind the lens at Encore! Portrait Design does more than capture his subjects’ best angles. He also captures the bonds that his subjects share with one another, such as parents and their children, grandparents and their grandchildren, or siblings. He also snaps away as dogs and their owners pal around, and freezes four moments in the early life of a baby so parents can look back on the growth of their wee one from sleeping soundlessly at infancy to whittling their first bottle at one years old.
